Teacher's Guide

This is the teacher's guide for the "Mind Over Matter" series. This exciting neuroscience education series encourages youth in grades 5-9 to learn about the biological effects of drug abuse on the body and the brain.

The "Mind Over Matter" series includes eight colorful, glossy magazines, each devoted to a specific drug or drug group. This guide includes background information, lesson plans and suggests a brain anatomy educational activity that can be used throughout the curriculum, as well as additional activities for each of the drug topics. Of course, we encourage you to develop your own relevant lesson plans.
